    Join me this Sunday, April 13, 2014, at 3:00pm, when I will speak with and play the music of Akua Allrich, vocalist, composer and teacher.  She is a Washington, DC native whose musical roots are vast and  grounded in jazz and pan-African music. She sings in many languages including Portuguese, French, Spanish, English, Xhosa, and Twi. She was educated at Howard University, where she obtained her BM in jazz vocals and a master’s degree in social work.  She was taught, coached and mentored by talented musicians such as world-renowned singer Kehembe V. Eichelberger, singer/drummer Grady Tate, and pianist Charles Covington.  While she was in college, one of the first jazz albums she bought was John Coltrane’s Live at the Village Vanguard: The Master Takes.
